REVIEW ~ Deviant by Jaimie Roberts ~ JMAC

 
 
 
*SYNOPSIS*
 
Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after.

This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge...

And revenge can only lead to one thing.

Tyler

He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him.

His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I’m falling in love.

Dean

I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn’t take much more of her.

She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left.

She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.
 
 
 
*JMAC'S REVIEW*
Seriously, very rarely after reading a book am I just at a total loss of words.  Congratulations Jaimie, you are now on the list of authors who have totally f****d my mind, and had me at a loss of words.
Deviant was just freaking amazing.  This is the first book of Jaimie's that I have read, and I can promise anyone right now, it will definitely not be the last!
Jaimie took me on a roller coaster I wont be forgetting anytime soon.
Deviant was the story about Tyler, a girl who had been stalked for the past 3 years, yet was not scared.  Tyler basically welcomed her stalker.  Little did she know, the guy in the shadows, with the black hoodie was someone she knew, or someone she thought she knew.
The whole plot was just brilliant.  My emotions were a jumbled mess while reading this book.  At first I hated Tyler's stalker.  Then I wanted to know what his reasoning for stalking Tyler were.  I mean, I knew he was mad, but why?! (Don't worry this does get answered)
Anyways, then comes the sexy part.  This "stalker" was nothing short of delicious bad boy wrapped in one.  He oozed dominance, and practiced it too.  When he got wind of Tyler's darkest fantasy, which happened to be having a go with someone she didn't know.  A night of passion by a stranger.  Tyler's stalker was sure to make sure she NEVER forgot who he was, or what he did to her. 
The sex in Deviant was HOTTTTT. Jaimie did exceptionally well with writing.  Sometimes an author doesn't execute 2 POV's both male and female, well.  Jaimie had no issues in that department.  While reading Tyler's pov I understood her, I felt the words she was saying, and reading "stalkers" pov I felt like it was actually a male talking, being all dominating and controlling. YUM
Deviant was dark, and Jaimie had no shame in her game with this novel.  But I loved it all the more for that reason.  Deviant will NOT disappoint.  Any dark/erotic, dark/romance lovers in the house??? Do yourselves a favor and one click this book !!! It will not disappoint.
Jaimie, you did awesome, honestly Deviant was just brilliantly written.  You are awesome, and have created a forever fan in me!
<3 JMAC

EXCLUSIVE : Excerpt from Unbroken (Book 2 The Disclosure Series) By R.E. Hunter


 
 
Release date: November 6, 2014

 

Exclusive Excerpt from Unbroken (Book 2 The Disclosure Series)
Everything he was looking for was there, in her eyes, a thousand words passing between them as they stood across from one another. His eyes swept over her, taking her in. She was fucking beautiful, her hair falling in loose waves over her shoulders, a tight sweater and jeans that could’ve been painted on, accentuating every soft curve.
His fingers burned to touch her, but he couldn’t ignore the sad look in her jade eyes, or the guilt that washed over him. He planted his feet firmly on the floor, fighting the urge to sweep her into his arms, hold her again. And then his world crashed and burned as Jeremy’s arm shot out, hooking around her waist and pulling her into the classroom. She turned, stealing a hopeless glance over her shoulder, then she was gone.
 
 
 
 
Synopsis
She was running toward her future. He was running from his past. When their worlds collided, nothing could prepare them for what was to come.
Reeling from Luke’s betrayal, Embry Jacobs is lost and looking for answers. His lies have ripped them apart, forcing her to question everything she thought she knew about the man she loves. But to give Luke another chance, she’ll have to forgive his lies and risk her already fragile heart.
Luke Brody’s past has finally caught up to him — in more ways than one. After losing the only woman he’s ever loved, he’ll do anything to get her back. But when he finally has the chance to make things right, unforeseen circumstances threaten to tear them apart once more.
When the truth comes out, will it set them free or break them both?

Blog Tour : Forgiving Reed by CA Harms : JMAC






FORGIVING REED

Author: CA Harms

Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Romance


~ SYNOPSIS ~
Kori suffered a great loss, one that left her feeling so desolate and alone, that she believed nothing would ever fill the void…

The only thing that kept her going was the one little piece of joy she still had in her life, her baby boy, Rhett. 

She had no choice but to move forward and give her son the best life she could. Which meant moving back home. 

Except there was one problem.

Home was where Reed would be… 

The man who once held her heart, then shattered it into a million pieces. 

Grieving the loss of Rhetts dad, and learning to forgive those who have betrayed her, Kori was battling it all.

But will she ever have the strength to forgive Reed? 


 
 
*JMAC'S REVIEW*
 
If you’ve read any of my reviews you probably know that I am a sucker for a good love story.  OH and that I’m obsessed with cowboy characters. 
Forgiving Reed was a mixture of both; an amazing love story, and a sexy dreamy cowboy.

I absolutely loved EVERYTHING about Forgiving Reed. 
Kori had experienced heart ache in the past.  She walked in on her high school sweetheart cheating on her with the town whore.  To say she was broken hearted is an understatement.  Reed was her first everything, and more than that, he was her friend.  After walking in on Reed, Kori decided to go away to college, and start over. 

Falling in love was never in her plans when she moved, but fate had a different plan.  Kori fell hard and in no time, much sooner than she hoped for, she was expecting.  Blake was the love of her life, the man who gave her the most precious gift, a baby. 
Both Blake and Kori decided to go on a trip before the baby came into the world, but once again fate had different plans.  A tragic accident left Kori alone, giving an emergency birth to her beautiful baby boy. 

After the accident Kori decided it was best to move back home to her parents farm.  While there she reconnected with her best friend Maria, and slowly but surely started the process of healing. 
Reed was a changed man.  He messed up once with Kori, and if ever given the chance again, he would do everything in his power to never mess up again.  Reed also knew what losing someone felt like, after losing his own mother due to a house fire. 

Sometimes we meet our soul mate, and things don’t work out the first time.  Sometimes others are brought into our life to teach us, prepare us, and mold us into the person we are supposed to be.  Blake was that for Kori.  Even though he was the love of Kori’s life, the father of her baby, Kori was always meant to be with Reed.  The only question is, would Kori be able to forgive the man that once broke her heart all those years ago?
CA you did it again.  You made me fall in love with these characters, this story.  Saying this book is a 5 star read is the biggest understatement ever.  Honestly it deserves 100 stars.  I can say without a doubt Forgiving Reed is on my favorites list of all time.  I loved it that hard!  CA thank you for writing another book that consumed me from page one.  You are amazing, and I can’t wait for Maria’s story.

For all my romance and sexy cowboy lovers, do yourselves a favor and one click the book to see if Kori chooses the sexy southern cowboy!

The Truth About Air & Water by Katherine Owen ~ JMAC



The Truth About Air & Water 
by
Katherine Owen
(truth in lies book 2)
        
The Truth About Air & Water, book 2 in the Truth In Lies Series. READ This Much Is True, book 1 first, although it's been written as a standalone. Readers say, don't do that. 

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” -Ernest Hemingway ~ A Farewell To Arms 

They share an epic love but one moment changes everything. A life together that seemed certain is shattered. One learns you never love the same way twice; the other learns what it means to come home. You only think you know how this love story goes, but do you really know how an epic love can end? 

“There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.” 
-F. Scott Fitzgerald 
She is living color, and I’ve been in a black-and-white world for far too long without her. Powerful stuff. It surrounds me. I’ve felt it since I first arrived. The forcefield of her. The magnetism of her. The power she wields over me. I’m alive again because of her, like a dying plant that finally gets some water. I’ve got it bad for this girl. Reality dawns. The light comes through the darkness and shines on me. She’s my water. 
-Lincoln Presley 

The truth is I breathe with him. He is my air. Raison d’etre. 
-Tally Landon 
Author's note: This novel is part of the Truth In Lies series. It can be read as standalone, however, fans of my fiction already are highly recommending that those new to my work, READ This Much Is True book 1 FIRST. 

As Lincoln Presley would say, "do as you must, Princess."
Chapter 2 - Tally
“She’s got the story,” I say to Linc hours later as we lie next to each other taking up only half of the king-sized bed because our bodies remain intertwined at an all but intimate level. The money shot photograph session took twice as long as the interview. After another three hours, we finally told Candy we had to go. I had to pick up Cara from preschool and Linc had a late practice.
We left Candy and her photographer while they were still packing up their gear. By this time, the reporter had given up on asking us any more questions. She had the money shot. She had the story. We weren’t going to like it. The unsettled feeling nagged at me, but Linc didn’t seem to care. “She’s got the story.” Apparently, my fears need repeating.
“So?” He asks with a laugh. “Come here.” He pulls me closer and trails his hands down between my legs knowing full well this is my ultimate weakness for him. I cannot not respond. His touch right there gets me to do just about anything for him. I moan. He laughs again as he starts to make his move.
We put Cara to bed fifteen minutes ago and left the bedroom door slightly ajar so we can hear her but closed enough so she doesn’t hear us. Usually, we wait the agreed-upon half-hour before commencing with doing the deed as I still like to call it, but she was extra tired because I let her stay up late to watch Entangled. I’m not sure she understands the story line completely. I’m not sure I do either but she loves Rapunzel’s long hair. We watched it together while we waited for Linc’s return from practice. Cara played with my hair for most of the movie and kept running her little fingers through it over and over, while I filled out endless wedding invitations, imploring the ninety-five percent of strangers I do not know to come witness our nuptials in the middle of October.
“The article won’t run for weeks. Don’t worry about it. By the time it does, the season will probably be over. We’ll be married. Settled. Nobody is going to care about how we met or what happened in Moscow. They’ll be staring at your photograph, the Dirty Dancing one, and be thinking how did that guy get so lucky and get a girl like her? All those Sports Illustrated fans wishing they were me and holding you up in the air just like Baby.”
“Even the girls?”
He laughs. “Even the girls. When are you going to start believing we’re the two luckiest people in the world?” I turn into him then and stroke his face and search his eyes for solace and truth but I don’t answer. “When are you going to let go and let this happen and believe in it? In me? In us?” Linc asks again.
I trace his lips and kiss him. Lightly. Just a trace.
In the next, he smothers my face with kisses of his own and eventually pulls me up beneath him. “Come on, Tally. Let it go. Let it all go. I’m here. I’m not going anywhere. Don’t put a time clock on this. Don’t walk down the aisle toward me, less than a month from now, still not believing that this isn’t real or this won’t last because it will. I’m here. You’re here. So. Believe it. In me. In us. Now.” He pulls away from me and studies my face. Guilt arrives right on time. I wince along with it.“What is it? What aren’t you telling me? Because with that face? It is definitely something.”
“Dr. Eldon scheduled an ultrasound. I just…she’s optimistic and I just hope that we can find a way to have another child. I want to give you a son because you’ve given so much to me. And I want you to be happy. With me.”
“I am happy with you. I love you because you’re my life. You’re my water. Don’t forget that. I couldn’t survive without you.” He plays with a strand of my hair and lets it slip through his fingers. “And I’m your air.” He sighs a little. “I love you just as you are whether we have more kids or not. That’s why we’re going to make it. But you have to stop believing that something bad is going to happen. You have to believe in us as much as I do. We’re going to have this great life together. We already do. I love you. You love me. And believe me; love is enough. Our love is enough.”
I hold my breath and gaze at him for a long while. The commitment and compassion I see in the depths of his eyes begins to steady me. All the doubt, and even the guilt, begin to fade away. Like a protective shield, his love encircles me from all around.
Then when he pulls me into his arm and looks at me as if I’m the only one that counts, just before he kisses me, it is reassuring in the only way that matters.
Lincoln Presley, baseball star, is one of a kind.
And, he’s mine.
It’s a miracle really.
What an unbelievable stroke of luck at having him in my life and loving me back. I kiss him and let go of all my deep-rooted fears: falling, failing, even losing. I actually feel them disappear as if a strange wind has come by and blown them away.
I take in air—his air—that allows me to live and breathe.
“Okay,” I eventually say.
Then, I grab his hand and lightly kiss the inside of his wrist, and then trail my lips along his broad chest. He leans back against the pillows with a knowing look pulling me along with him, but cedes all control to me. I start to smile, but then another errant thought crashes in on me and threatens to undo all of these joyous declarations.
Everything breaks.

Both on the verge of fame. A ballerina who lies. A baseball player who believes her. Well, the truth changes everything. 

Tally Landon is just trying to survive the death of her twin sister, graduate from high school, and escape her tragic story by pursuing her ballet career in New York. She doesn't count on Lincoln Presley, Stanford's baseball wonder, to affect her at all. Adding him to a long list of one-night stands is the plan. Lying to him about her age and name is her standard method of operandi. She doesn't count on being found out, on seeing him again, or falling in love. 

Lincoln Presley's life is all mapped out for him. There is only baseball. With Major League Baseball circling their favorite prospect with a lucrative offer, he cannot afford to mess up. And, he doesn't; until he meets up with the girl he saved in that burning wreckage on the 101 on Valentine's Day months before. By the time he learns her real name and of all the lies she's told, he's in far too deep to ever really let her go. 

Fate has a different set of plans, but when fame and lies tear them apart, one truth remains.
